Ill Logic...or hoax?

Metallica sues over misuse of chords.

This is posted on MTV News (although the url line says

Metallica are taking legal action against independent Canadian rock band Unfaith over what they feel is unsanctioned usage of two chords the band has been using since 1982 : E and F.

"We sent a demand letter and haven't reached a resolution, so we had to sue," she [Metallica's Lawyer] said. "They continue to shamelessly feature the two chords on their website song samples and we just can't have that."

According to the drummer, the continued use of the two chords causes "confusion, deception and mistake in the minds of the public".

A friend tells me this is a good hoax but adds that Metallica brought it on themselves.
